Calling all Vault Hunters! If you are playing Borderlands 3 (and how can you claim to be a Vault Hunter if you aren’t), then you’ll want to know that the Rare Chest Riches mini-event is now on. This latest event follows on from the Farming Frenzy and Takedown at the Maliwan Blacksite events. As the name suggests, this event improves your chances of getting better loot from rare chests. The rarity of items in all rare chests is increased. You may finally be able to get that legendary item that you have been dreaming of. What’s more, if you are watching someone stream Borderlands 3 and you have the ECHOcast Twitch Extension, then you have one in four chance of claiming one of the items that the streamer discovers. The Rare Chest Riches even is on right now and is scheduled to run until 8:59 AM PT on Thursday, 13th February.
The Rare Chest Riches mini-event starts today in #Borderlands3! For the next two weeks, Rare Chests have a higher chance of containing Legendary loot! Plus, don’t forget to share in the riches with the Twitch ECHOcast Extension!

If you are unfamiliar with Borderlands 3 you can check out the Beginner’s Guide video below along with the official description of the game –
The original shooter-looter returns, packing bazillions of guns and an all-new mayhem-fueled adventure! Blast through new worlds and enemies as one of four brand new Vault Hunters – the ultimate treasure-seeking badasses of the Borderlands, each with deep skill trees, abilities, and customization. Play solo or join with friends to take on insane enemies, score loads of loot and save your home from the most ruthless cult leaders in the galaxy.
A MAYHEM-FUELED THRILL RIDE
Stop the fanatical Calypso Twins from uniting the bandit clans and claiming the galaxy’s ultimate power. Only you, a thrill-seeking Vault Hunter, have the arsenal and allies to take them down.
YOUR VAULT HUNTER, YOUR PLAYSTYLE
Become one of four extraordinary Vault Hunters, each with unique abilities, playstyles, deep skill trees, and tons of personalization options. All Vault Hunters are capable of awesome mayhem alone, but together they are unstoppable.
LOCK, LOAD, AND LOOT
With bazillions of guns and gadgets, every fight is an opportunity to score new gear. Firearms with self-propelling bullet shields? Check. Rifles that spawn fire-spewing volcanoes? Obviously. Guns that grow legs and chase down enemies while hurling verbal insults? Yeah, got that too.
Discover new worlds beyond Pandora, each featuring unique environments to explore and enemies to destroy. Tear through hostile deserts, battle your way across war-torn cityscapes, navigate deadly bayous, and more!
QUICK & SEAMLESS CO-OP ACTION
Play with anyone at any time online or in split-screen co-op, regardless of your level or mission progress. Take down enemies and challenges as a team, but reap rewards that are yours alone – no one misses out on loot.
